New Jersey Civil War Monument Vandalized

 
 

A cry for help in the restoration project of a Civil War Monument erected in 1915 by veterans of the Civil War in Bridgeton, New Jersey. The statue was vandalized just before Christmas 2011. The community is rallying together to capture the vandals and raise money to restore this in honor of those who fought for our freedoms in that great conflict 150 years ago.
